With help from mom, 4-month-old girl celebrates being cancer-free after beating brain tumor

OAKLAND, Calif. — California parents and their baby girl celebrated a major milestone Friday, Jan. 24.

At just 4 months old, Lillian “Lily” Grace won the battle of her young life — beating brain cancer.

To celebrate, Lillian, with help from her mother, Leann Borden, rang the bell at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland, California to symbolize being cancer-free.

Hospital officials announced Friday, Jan. 31 Baby Lily was ready to go home.

The baby girl was born in September, and shortly after, a nurse realized she wasn’t moving her limbs correctly.

Several tests revealed a brain tumor.

Baby Lily eventually went through general and targeted chemotherapy treatments, and eventually, doctors could no longer detect the tumor and declared her cancer-free.
